usefullness of transvaginal sonography
Kyung Nam Ryu
To assess the value of transvaginal sonography, the findings of 55 patients who underwernt transabdominal and transvaginal sonography were compared in terms of image quality and diagnostic information. Transvaginal sonograpy obtained a better image in 56%, was equal in 40% and worse in 4%. In terms of diagnostic information, the transvaginal sonogram was better in 27%, remained equal in 69% and was worse in 4%. We suggest that transvaginal sonography has considerable advantages over conventional transabdominal sonography in the evaluation of pelvic lesions in the female.
